Mark, don't waste your time on this twit - he cross posts to multiple
lists, usually asking questions that are quite clearly basic shell or
other utility programming questions that look more like school-work
than anything else, he never thanks anyone for their answers and he
seems to think we are here solely to do his school/home work for him.

I've yet to see a single question from him on any of the lists to
which he posts which had anything directly to do with the list topics
- here it would be CentOS specific questions.  They're all basic,
general programming questions that a thorough reading of the
applicable man page would answer just fine.
